Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry the dog I bought this for my grandson's birthday in November. It's a wonderful book about a dog that doesn't want to take a bath. There's another Harry the dog book about a sweater that Harry gets as a gift. I remember these books from when my own sons were preschoolers. Great illustrations, a story with a message in it. Great fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best children's book ever! Guaranteed crowd pleaser every time!. Every student (especially Kindergarten & Grade Ones), even the most reluctant readers love this book. Harry is absolutely lovable and the old style timeless illustrations are wonderful. Children keep on begging me to read this story over and over again. Once they have read "Harry the Dirty Dog", kids will become quickly get hooked to all the other Harry stories.

From Our Editors

"Harry, a shaggy white dog with black spots, hated baths so much that one day he buried the scrubbing brush in the backyard, ran away from home, and had a wonderful day. Drawings full of action and humor".--The Horn Book.
